SIDS down to gene deficiency which prevents milk being digested in some babies
Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) may be caused by a defective gene which prevents babies digesting milk, a breakthrough study found.
Gene therapy for rare eye disease set to be offered on NHS
Patients with a rare inherited eye disorder are set to be able to access a new gene therapy on the UK National Health Service (NHS) which slows down sight loss.
Study shows how specific gene variants may raise bipolar disorder risk
A new study by researchers at The Picower Institute for Learning and Memory at MIT finds that the protein CPG2 is significantly less abundant in the brains of people with bipolar disorder (BD) and shows how specific mutations in the SYNE1 gene that encodes the protein undermine its expression and its function in neurons.
Rice 'safely conserved' in Philippines gene bank
Scientists said more than 100 thousand varieties of rice have been safeguarded for the future.
Single gene mutation may have helped humans become optimal long-distance runners
Two to three million years ago, the functional loss of a single gene triggered a series of significant changes in what would eventually become the modern human species, altering everything from fertility rates to increasing cancer risk from eating red meat.
Turning off a gene in cell can reverse skin wrinkles, hair loss in mice: study
A study published in the journal Cell Death and Disease showed that the mice developed with wrinkled skin and visible hair loss could be restored by turning off a gene, lending a clue for potential therapy against aging.
Gene engineering lowers cholesterol in mice
Biomedical researchers have used a genetic engineering technique to turn off a gene that regulates cholesterol levels in adult mice.
Gene trigger to help brain heal from range of debilitating conditions identified
Researchers from University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in the US showed that turning on a gene inside cells called astrocytes results in a smaller scar and potentially more effective recovery from injury.
Gene regions linked to increased risk for schizophrenia identified
Genetics researchers in Britain have identified 50 new gene regions that increase risk for schizophrenia, potentially paving the way for new treatment.
Gene therapy improves immunity in babies with 'bubble boy' disease
Early evidence suggested that gene therapy developed at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital will lead to broad protection for infants with the devastating immune disorder X-linked severe combined immunodeficiency disorder.
Gene therapy might lead to blindness reversing
Blindness might one day be reversible thanks to gene therapy that can reprogram cells at the back of the eye to become light sensitive, according to a study released by the University of Oxford.
Gene variant linked to Alzheimer’s a triple threat
A genetic risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease is a double, make that triple, whammy.
Gene linked to brain damage in premature infants
A new study at King's College London identified a gene believed to be related to brain damage in premature infants.
Gene testing revolution for cancer care
Cancer patients should be routinely offered DNA tests to help select the best treatments for them, according to England's chief medical officer.
